cute kids all dolled up for Civil War pictures

Okay, I have tried to hold off on more Civil War pictures, but I just can't wait anymore. These are some of the pictures I took last Saturday at Heber Old Town. My friend Amanda and I dressed our kids up and took them to Heber Old Town because that is where we (the Utah Civil War Association) are having the Heber Valley Civil War and Living History Weekend in September and we wanted some pictures to put on Facebook and also to make a website.

The kids were great sports, although Kelsey was irritated because the pinafore I spent hours and hours making didn't fit very well with this dress. She is definitely going to be exciting as a teenager when it comes to clothing!
Kendal was just happy to run around in her dress and pinafore, but it was getting a little too warm for her.
Emmitt was also super happy to just run around the boardwalks, as long as I didn't make him wear his bonnet!

So here are my kids and Amanda's kids. They are so darling!

Our event in September will also spill over to Southfield Park so we went there to get a few pictures also. Look how manly Emmitt looks with his wooden sword! I took this picture for those of you who think I am horrible for making my little boy wear a dress. See, he is so happy! I did take off his brown pinafore because it was so warm though.

If you look in the background of this picture you can see a white truck and a blue car. That is the animal control officer giving Amanda a ticket for having her dog with us. He was not a happy or nice guy about it at all!

Now for the drum roll . . . . .
Please go check out the website we (mostly Amanda, okay, ALL Amanda!) made for our fun Civil War event this fall. There is still work to do, but the bones of it are there - including the fun pictures of our kids! We will be adding some more 'military' pictures as soon as we can con some young man and a few of his friends into dressing up for us.

Rachel, I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!!!!! It's so you. Sp pretty and classy. You did FAB on your girls dresses and pinafores, and of coarse sweet Emmitt. I need to try to copy my pics again for you. FYI- I have that song "Let's go down" or whatever in my head, lol. I'm off to stuff my face with pop corn and seasoning salt. Mark just loves to sleep with me after I eat it.
